  1. main_Player.txtScroll.tf.x = 0; main_Player.txtScroll.tf.y = 0; main_Player.txtScroll.x = 166; main_Player.txtScroll.y = 182; main_Player.txtScroll.width = main_Player.txtScroll.tf.width; scrollWords(); function scrollWords():void { main_Player.txtScroll.tf.wordWrap = false; main_Player.txtScroll.tf.autoSize = TextFieldAutoSize.CENTER; if(main_Player.txtScroll.tf.width >= 136) { goForwardTween(tf); } } function goForwardTween(tf:TextField):void { TweenMax.to(tf, 3, {x:248, delay:1, onComplete:goBackTween, onCompleteParams:[tf] }); } function goBackTween(tf:TextField):void { TweenMax.to(tf, 3, {x:-tf.width, delay:1, onComplete:goForwardTween, onCompleteParams:[tf] }); } Hi guys haven't been here in awhile here goes ..... ...basically what I have is a TextField inside a MovieClip, and if the text inside the TextField exceeds a certain size it moves back & forth so that the far right of the MovieClip moves to the far left of the mask and far left of the MovieClip moves to the far right of the mask. But for some reason I cant seem to get it to move it populates the TextField ok .. but wont TweenMax.to functions even if the text is larger than the mask. hope someone can help... Steven
  2. I'm trying to create a line of text that slowly fades into view from left to right (or top to bottom, whatever). I see the very simple process of fading the entire text field in or out, but is there a way to fade vertically or horizontally? Thanks!
  3. The code is below. When Tweenlite is called it treats "tileList[count1]" as a string instead of a variable name. However the trace seems to return what I would expect (tile1, tile2, tile3...). If I remove "tileList[count1]" from the tween and replace it with a direct call to the MovieClip (tile1, tile2, etc) the code works perfectly... Things I've tried: Using a vector instead of an array. Setting tileList[count1] to a public and local variable and then calling that variable. Removing the randomSort. Removing count1 and calling the array element directly (ie, tileList[5]). public class wtpMain extends MovieClip { public var tileList:Array = new Array(tile1,tile2,tile3,tile4,tile5,tile6,tile7,tile8,tile9,tile10,tile11,tile12,tile13,tile14,tile15 ,tile16); public var count1:int = 0; public function wtpMain() { nextButton.buttonMode = true; nextDis.mouseEnabled=false; nextButton.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, nextButtonClickh); tileList.sort(randomSort); } public function nextButtonClickh(event:MouseEvent):void { nextButtonClick(); } public function nextButtonClick():void{ TweenLite.to(tileList[count1], 5, {y:700, alpha:0}); trace(tileList[count1]); count1++; } public function randomSort(objA:Object, objB:Object):int{ return Math.round(Math.random() * 2) - 1; } } }
  4. I am hoping Greensock will be the answer to a problem I have. My client would like to have MP3 narration loaded sequentially (one for each paragraph in the script). I am able to do this with AS3 (array) but I am unable to successfully code a pause function. Pausing always stores a position from the 1st mp3 and not the one currently playing. I have poked around Greensock a bit but I cannot find tutorials that suit my needs. Will Loadermax work for this situation? If so, can someone point me in the right direction? thx
  5. Hello, Is there a way for the viewer to control an object with his mouse? First I want the object to enter the stage and stop. After the object stops I would like the viewer to be able to move it up and down on the y axis using his mouse. Any help would be appreciated!
  6. Hi, I am working on a project, in which I am trying to move 12 SWF files simontaneously with the help of (TweenMax.allTo). but when I try this in browser, many frames are skipping during movement. size of each SWF is 2500X2400 px and I'm using 4 MB jpg image in SWF as backfround. Code : TweenMax.allTo([CONTAINER_1, CONTAINER_2], groundFriction, { x:xPos, y:yPos} ); Both the containers are containing 6 SWF files. xPos and yPos is calculating dynamically on keyboard key down event, and I am using ENTER_FRAME to move the canvas. If someone knows how to deal with it, please help me. Thanks in advance.
  7. Hello again, I have been going through the various plugins and I seem to have run into a problem with the scrambleTextPlugin. I'm trying to follow the instructions in the the documentation but nothing shows in the screen when I do so. I am using a main timeline to encapsulate the scrambleText timeline // MAIN CLASS ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// var t:TimelineMax = new TimelineMax(); createTextField("MAKE SOME NOISE!!!!"); t.add(AdvancedTextEffects.randomCharacters(text, 3)); t.play(); //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// // SUB TIMELINE //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// public static function randomCharacters(target:TextField, time:Number):TimelineMax{ TweenPlugin.activate([ScrambleTextPlugin]); var t:TimelineMax = new TimelineMax(); t.from(target, time, {scrambleText:{text:"THIS IS NEW TEXT"}}); return t; } ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// This method seems to work for just about everything else but this instance. Any help you could provide would be very appreciated. I am running this an Adobe AIR application. Thank you, Steven Lopes
  8. Hello, We purchased the Club membership and received the SplitTextField which honestly is working really really well. I'm having a little problem though. I am attempting to create a sub-timeline using TimelineMax which animates a SplitTextField. Once I create the timeline in my function, I return the TimelineMax to the parent class which adds it to the main timeline (also a timelineMax). I have been doing this for all the animations I need and its working just fine. I can sequence 10 different complex animations without a problem! Here is my issue (and I know it simple, just need a push in the right direction), once the Split Text Field is done, I need it off the screen so the other animations will render. I tried the onComplete and the onCompleteRender functions and told them to call a cleanup function (which does work), but it looks like it calls the function after the first character of my staggerFrom completes animation. Basically, what I am seeing is the first character stop, then the SplitTextField is destroyed and the other animations render. If I do not destroy the SplitTextField, nothing happens after the first animation. Below is my general code: // PARENT CLASS ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// var t:TimelineMax = new TimelineMax(); // Creates an flash.text.textField with general properties including embedded fonts. createTextField("MAKE SOME NOISE!!!!"); // Add the animation I need which uses the Split Text Field t.add(AdvancedTextEffects.ScaleandSpinText(text,4)); //Add more animations which do not use the Split Text Field t.add(SimpleTextEffects.Flash2(text, 1)); t.add(SimpleTextEffects.ScaleOut(text, 1)); t.add(SimpleTextEffects.Jiggle4(text, 1)); t.add(SimpleTextEffects.SpinClockwise(text, 1)); //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// // ADVANCED TEXT EFFECTS CLASS ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// public static function ScaleandSpinText(target:TextField, time:int):TimelineMax{ // Create Sub-Timeline var t:TimelineMax = new TimelineMax(); // Activate Plugins TweenPlugin.activate([TransformAroundCenterPlugin, AutoAlphaPlugin, OnCompleteRenderPlugin]); // Create the SplitTextField var mySTF:SplitTextField = new SplitTextField(target); // Add the Tween we want t.add(TweenMax.staggerFrom(mySTF.textFields, 3, {transformAroundCenter:{scale:5, rotation:360}, alpha:0, autoAlpha:1, ease:Power4.ease-Out, onCompleteRender:cleanup, onCompleteRenderParams:[mySTF]},0.2)); // Return the Timeline return t; } private static function cleanup(mySTF:SplitTextField):void{ mySTF.destroy(); } Please let me know what you think and how to get around this. Thank you! - Steven Lopes
  9. Hi there, I upgraded my Flash Builder this morning, and all of a sudden my TweenLite.as is giving off warnings that have NEVER popped up in my life. It says: Assignment within conditional. Did you mean == instead of =? I've tried upgrading to GSAP v12, But instead of 1 error warning, it gave off 10, in different Greensock files... so I went back to 11. Any solutions? Really need to get this project finished Regards Shane
  10. Hello, I'm just getting into animating without the traditional timeline. I mainly worked on banner ads and was very efficient at creating dynamic ads within the tight constraints of 40-60k files. I'm quite nervous about what direction to take. I desperately want to start learning JS HTML5 animation but have a concern that I will run into many clients that need flash only. I felt the warm embrace (ease) of flash for too long. Now I feel I'm in the wild wild west again. A couple questions. 1. Can you develop JS and convert to flash if needed automatically? 2. I know JS and AS3 are close in syntax but if I start to learn JS will a conversion to AS3 if needed be a nightmare manually?
  11. Helly everybody, I was hoping someone out there might be able to provide some info on applying the greensock throwprops plugin to a vertical scrolling nav menu for an android app. I have tried modifying the code from the throwprops page, but it uses a textfield, i want buttons inside a movie clip... Is that even possible? Can anybody point out any useful tuts or articles? or would someone like to view the file? Thanks a bunch everybody, Alex
  12. Hello. I am checking out v12 AS3 Tweenlite for the first time. Previously I used 10 and 11 extensively. I see now there is a "greensock.swc" file. What do I do with this? I can't find reference to it in the "docs" nor when I search this forum.
  13. I was wondering if a version newer than v11 (as3) is best suited for iOS / iPhone ?
  14. Hey there, I have been trying to learn how to use greensock for all my animations for my entertainment technoloy classes. There is one menu I have been trying to recreate, and I am not sure how they did it. The site is www.newcastlebrown.com . the menu is on the left side of the website. I am sure it is something I am overlooking and probably somewhat simple to do. If anyone has any insigt to how to do this, please let me know. Code samples are much appreciated. I know they used greensock and tweenlite, so this is why I came to this forum to ask this question. Thanks guys!
  15. Hi Guys, I am loading a few flv's using VideoLoader and LoaderMax queue. My video is 720x406 and I am stretching it to fit in 1000x564. VideoLoader's API says that smooting on videos is turned on by default and I have tried setting it to true as well. Problem is that when I test the sfw in flash, smoothing works but when I run this file in browser or on it own, no smoothing is applied. I have also tried this: intro.rawContent.smoothing = true; Appreciate if anyone can point out what might be happening. Thanks, ak
